Round 3 TAACCCT Reports

In Round 3, DOL awarded four-year grants to 57 institutions of higher education in 2013. For this round, our team developed three reports—an implementation study report, a report synthesizing the implementation findings from the third-party evaluations, and a report synthesizing the impact findings from the third-party-evaluations.

Implementation of the Round 3 Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grants

From 2011 to 2018, the US Department of Labor administered the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program, which awarded $1.9 billion to institutions of higher education with programs of two years or less, mainly community colleges. Colleges sought to increase their capacity to provide education and training to adults in need of new skills for in-demand jobs. This report, part of a series of publications from the TAACCCT national evaluation, presents findings on the implementation of the Round 3 grants, based on a survey of colleges, college and partner interviews, and participant focus groups.
